A Fence Away From Freedom

Organized as a unit, this eight-instructional activity overview of Japanese-Americans during WWII is full of engaging best-practice instruction. Young historians examine propaganda, connect personally to children's stories, analyze primary source documents, debrief in small groups, distinguish between opinion and fact, and complete mini-research projects. They read excerpts from Farewell to Manzanar, and finish with a formal debate. Readings and materials are noted but not included. Use all or some of it!

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
